During the month of October, the YWCA will help spread hope, health and healing throughout the central Alabama community by recognizing Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Domestic Violence knows no social boundaries or class distinction. It affects thousands of women and families each year. In fact, Alabama is now ranked second in the nation in the rate of women killed by men. Domestic violence is one of the most misunderstood crimes in our state and often one of the least obvious.
